The Russian warships set sail to Tartus!

Image

According to IRIB, the Chief of Staff interarme Russian, the Russian navy is en route to the Syrian port of Tartus strategic.
"Several units of the Russian Navy are already deployed in the Mediterranean and they head right now to the port of Tartus. Warship Chabanenko are among the buildings left to Tartous" the Russian general has refused further comment . The Israeli website DEBKAfile said Saturday put on alert of the Russian and the Mediterranean and Black Sea fleet of the Navy in preparation for a possible U.S. military action against Syria, a key ally of the Russian army.

Western attack to punish Syria likely to begin with barrage of more than 100 missiles in 48 hour blitz

A British and American attack to punish Syria for using chemical weapons will see the two allies launch a barrage of more than 100 missiles in a blitz lasting up to 48 hours, according to military insiders and diplomatic sources.

A Royal Navy Trafalgar class submarine will join forces with American warships in the Mediterranean to fire Tomahawk cruise missiles in an attack that is likely to begin within days.
The missiles would be unleashed to destroy Mr Assad's command and control facilities, weapons delivery centres, intelligence bases and militia training camps.
Military commanders sealed agreement on the scope of attacks with regional allies and the Syrian opposition, officials at a two-day summit in Amman said last night.
The two day meeting in Jordan saw Gen Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the US joint chiefs, and Gen Sir Nick Houghton, the head of Britain's Armed Forces, set out detailed war plans to service chiefs from 10 countries.
A Jordanian official said: "There was consensus that the international community must take action in Syria and that missile strikes by naval or air forces would be the best response."

The attack would be strictly limited to punishing the Assad government for using chemical weapons, rather than designed to tip the balance in favour of the rebels and destroy his government.
The first salvoes would be fired from US and British submarines currently deployed in the Mediterranean and four American destroyers positioned in the area.
American forces would launch the vast majority of missiles, but the Royal Navy is understood to have a Trafalgar class sub "ready to go" which can fire missiles from its torpedo tubes while submerged, sources said.
Proposals have also been drawn up for "stand-off" strikes by warplanes firing missiles from outside Syrian airspace to avoid the regime's extensive air defences.
A senior Free Syrian Army official based in Jordan said that the rebel command and the US had swapped information on key targets that should be included in any offensive operation.
The official, a former general who defected from the regime's air force, said: "The important places that will be attacked includes the significant weapons depots, the headquarters of top military units, missile launch sites, the runways of military airports and the air defences."
Chemical weapons stockpiles are unlikely to be a target themselves though. Attacks on Assad's stores of mustard gas and nerve toxins could trigger deadly chemical leaks, or make the arsenals vulnerable to plunder by jihadist rebel groups.
Following several days of "war cabinet" sessions with his national security team and Pentagon chiefs, President Barack Obama is believed to favour a campaign of up to 48 hours.
As well as cruise missiles, Mr Obama, his advisors and generals have been debating how heavily to use long-range bombers and fighters to pound targets from outside Syrian air-space in so-called "stand-off " strikes.
The jets would release joint air-to-surface cruise missiles that can be fired from hundreds of miles away to avoid exposing US pilots to Syria's large although outdated air defence system.
"The fine-tuning in the military planning has been how punitive these strikes should be," a Pentagon advisor told The Daily Telegraph.
"Do we simply punish him for using chemical weapons as a warning not to do so again? Or do we take out his ability to use chemical weapons for good?"
Chris Harmer, a former senior naval officer now working for the Institute for the Study of War, drew up a document earlier this year outlining operations for limited surgical cruise missile strikes. "I think the most effective tactic at this point to deny further use of chemical weapons would be to take out the Syrian air force," he said.
US planes could fly out of air bases in Cyprus and southern Turkey. Two US aircraft carriers that have been patrolling waters around the Persian Gulf may also be diverted to the region through the Red Sea.
Pentagon air staff planners have also drawn up plans to deploy F22s and F15s in Saudi Arabia and Jordan to provide security reassurance America's most important Arab allies and as back-up for air war operations.
However Jordanian officials wary of retaliation last night said they refused to be "a launch pad for attacks against Syria".
Mr Obama remains extremely wary of mission creep and is resolutely opposed to "boots on the ground" or even imposing "no fly zones". The US also does not want Assad to lose control of his chemical weapons stockpiles to extremist rebels – the goal is to prevent him using them again.

In the report by THE TELEGRAPH, it states that attacks on chem weapons stockpiles were doubtful as it could trigger deadly chemical leaks.
so does that mean that Assad only needs to move chemical WMD around to strategic locations ear marked for attack by the US and GB, and let it be known to all where the WMD are, to prevent those attacks on key positions.
I still think the attacks last week were by either rogue Assad fighters or by the rebels who would then blame Assad.

It really doesn't look like the US and the UK governments can renege on their threats of retaliation to the attacks last week at this point, so what happens now is either a huge escalation by all, including Russia, or there will be a huge stand off, a stalemate if you like.

unfortunately I reacon its gonna get really ugly over there.

we are possibly only a day or so away from finding out how bad this will or wont get, :shooting:

what a sad world we live in, when people who really want to do the right thing by everyone cant do anything because of corrupt governments all over the globe.

RRR

BTW MALOGG, my old man, whom I did not get to know even a little till I were about 40yrs old, due to my parents divorcing when I were 3yrs old, any way , he were drum sergeant at his pipe band that he had been a member of since he were 16yrs old, he were made a life time member and he taught all the new drummers and led the band.
he also made all the different sticks on a lathe in his shed for all the drummers in the band.
he also played the pipes, piano, piano accordion, and a bunch of other stuff.
My point is that he would be rocking in his grave if he were able to see that piper you have in the bottom of your posts, that's cool to watch, :flop:
The more people i meet, the more i like my dog
